HURRICANE IAN - FLORIDA
Hurricane Ian strengthened into a monstrous category 4 storm before making landfall just south of Punta Gorda, Florida on September 28, 2022. A catastrophic storm surge struck the west coast of Florida south of Tampa, and over 20 inches of rain caused major flooding across the peninsula all the way to the Atlantic coast. Ian spent many hours slowly crossing Florida and emerged off the east coast as a tropical storm with winds around 65 mph during the late morning hours of September 29.
